The Road To Gears 5 Continues!

Gilded Kait stands facing the camera. Text reads "Unlock Gilded Kait in Gears 5, Take Her To Gears 5". "Complete the Gears 4 Campaign in Co-op on any difficulty (retroactive)".

For the past two months, The Road to Gears 5 has offered up the opportunity to earn 5 sets of exclusives rewards for Gears of War 4 that will follow you into Gears 5.

Beginning tomorrow, August 1st, at 10am PT, we’re adding 5 more Challenges to take on across Gears 4 (and in one case, beyond!) to earn content for launch day in Gears 5! Here’s what to expect:

Various rewards are shown - a number of coins symbolizing Iron, a Boost canister, a hand holding a chainsaw for the Slicer Execution and the Gilded Lancer weapon skins. Challenge details are also listed, with full descriptions in the text below.

Complete the Gears 4 Campaign Co-Op on any difficulty (retroactive)

  • Gilded Kait Character Skin (Gears 4 and 5)
  • Gilded Kait Banner (Gears 5)
  • Gears 4 Hero Bloodspray (Gears 5)

Earn an achievement in each of the following Gears games:

  • Gears of War OR Gears of War (PC)
  • Gears of War 2

Note: This Challenge is not a Challenge found in the Xbox Guide and can be tracked on beginning tomorrow at 10am PT. Once completed, Gilded Weapons will be awarded in Gears 4 on your next sign in. You do not need to claim these weapons in Gears 4 to get them in 5.

If you haven’t already taken them on, there’s also four challenges from the second phase of the Road to Gears 5 that you can still complete! All Road to Gears 5 challenges end on September 2nd, so there’s no better time to secure your exclusive content.

And, if you haven’t already played Gears 4, there’s no better time to jump in with the whole game available free to download for Xbox Gold Members from August 1st – 31st. Once you download the game, it’s yours – forever.

Track your Road to Gears 5 challenges and find out more on our official Road to Gears 5 hub. Challenge Tracking for Phase 3 will begin in-game and on the web once the Challenges go live.
